Woven border 1935.32.0174

MOTIF DESCRIPTION

The motif is a zig-zag pattern variation with an extra V accompanying the main V-shape all along.  Small “barbs” stick out of all the lines.

MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUE

Warp:  camelid fibre in red, yellow, dark green, dark blue.  Weft:  camelid fibre in red.  Technique:  this is a complete textile with selvages on all 4 sides.  The red yarn, in plain weave, forms the ground.  The 2 other shades of yarn were used for the pick-up as required for the pattern design.  Running down one long side is a fringe in the same shades as in the weave.  A few bits of a fine plain weave in camelid fibre (probably) were attached to one short side.  Linear style.
